Former India player Nikhil Chopra named his all-time favourite playing XI of the IPL.
He picked 16 cricketers whom he feels have been the best players throughout the years in the IPL.
He went on to add how difficult it is to pick a playing XI as there are many players who are regularly performing well.
Chopra started off by picking his openers. For this, he picked Shikhar Dhawan, Chris Gayle and Rohit Sharma.
In the middle order, Chopra’s picks were Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
Next, he chose MS Dhoni for his excellent captaincy, wicketkeeping skills and being the best finisher in the IPL.
After this, he picked Suresh Raina and Gautam Gambhir.
For his spin-bowling department, Chopra chose Amit Mishra, Piyush Chawla and Yuzvendra Chahal along with Harbhajan Singh and Sunil Narine.
And finally, in the pace department, he chose Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga and Dwayne Bravo as they are all specialists in death bowling.
For his captain, Chopra wanted either Rohit Sharma or MS Dhoni to lead his favourite playing XI.
Rohit has 5 titles as captain of the IPL while MS Dhoni has 4.
